My name is Catherine and I was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 31. I have lived nearly my whole life knowing I was different, but not understanding why. Learning I have Autism has unlocked a part of myself that I thought I would never understand, and since my diagnosis I am constantly learning new things about myself and my unique disorder. This new, valuable information as well as a lifetime of knowledge and experience from the perspective of someone living on the Autism Spectrum is what I want to share in this blog, both as a therapeutic exercise for myself and to hopefully help someone out there better understand themselves, or someone they love.
I live in Victoria, Australia with my cat and two dogs and I love gaming, writing and generally living a quiet and simple life.
